Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - The Green Bay Packers agreed to terms with
rookie running back Eddie Lacy, the team's second-round pick in April's NFL
Draft, on Thursday.
The Packers selected Lacy, the Offensive MVP of January's BCS Championship
Game while at the University of Alabama, with the 61st overall choice. The
former Crimson Tide standout is expected to compete with holdovers DuJuan
Harris, Alex Green and James Starks for Green Bay's starting running back
position during training camp.
Lacy entered the draft as a junior after putting together a stellar 2012
campaign for the Crimson Tide, during which he rushed for 1,322 yards and 17
touchdowns to earn first-team All-SEC honors.
The deal leaves UCLA defensive end Datone Jones, Green Bay's first-round pick,
as the lone unsigned member of the Packers' draft class.
